Little baits like this usually bumble bees, grasshoppers or crayfish patterns are great baits for people starting out ! I use them as well BUT I wanted to re-blog this picture as it’s a very clear shot of the bait in the mouth of a fish.
Also great for kids fishing at trout ponds of local ponds, very erratic shaking/rattling that can trigger some good hits from all sizes of fish……big fish will always considering hitting a small bait AND small fish will do the same with big baits !
